log stools painted with glow in the dark paint for firepit seating! HOW COOL !!!
I have no idea why I didn't think of turning the shoe storage issue into a seating opportunity, especially since seating is such an issue for us.
Seating under the staircase (maybe have extra seating in basement)
Love this dining room! Would be nice to have the settee as additional seating for company. Versatile and space saving!!
Love the idea of seating into bar
DIY Storage bench - Add cushion, use bench as seating. Put bench against wall, push table against wall, pull out when you need the bench seating, great storage for tablecloths, and occasionally used kitchen things.
